  1. Updates

For the fifth year, Oregon Business showcased exemplary nonprofit workplaces on their 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon project. More than 5,000 employees and volunteers from 159 nonprofits statewide took part in the 2013 survey.

The project is based on Oregon Business’ 20-year-old, well-known 100 Best Companies project. The nonprofit project was created to recognize nonprofits as key businesses critical to the economic health of the state, employing hundreds of thousands of Oregonians.

This year, Playworks was named the #1 Best Nonprofit to Work For in a medium organization, 20 to 49 employees. We are thrilled to be part of this list alongside other great non-profits. Most importantly, we are thankful for having an amazing team of dedicated and passionate employees.
